The upcoming 2022 Subaru Crosstrek is in the works. This model had great success so far and we expect for that tradition to continue. According to the newest reports, the new Crosstrek will arrive with slight changes. Its SI-Drive is aging and it is standard on all Crosstrek models. It is a driver-selectable engine control system and only Subaru offers it.
Moreover, Crosstrek comes with a standard AWD setup, which is great. New Subaru Crosstrek will gain a more aggressive look and sportier character. The interior will also suffer a couple of changes and the sales will start later in 2021.
2022 Crosstrek Gets Mid-Cycle Facelift
In 2012, Subaru introduced the first-gen Crosstrek model known as XV. Now, a decade later the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek is one of the most reliable models in its respective segment. Compared to the first generation, the new Crosstrek looks different. Moreover, this model grew in size and it now uses a completely different architecture.
The 2022 Crosstrek will gain a couple of exterior modifications. For a start, the grille is updated, along with the headlamps. Crosstrek will retain its athletic stance and serious level of sportiness. Subaru will provide new 18-inch wheels that are looking incredible. Moreover, Crosstrek Sport will gain new rims as well. Speaking of this model, it is once again available in Plasma Yellow Pearl exterior color.
The cabin of the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek will continue to look modern and upright. This model will once again provide generous legroom and headroom. Moreover, even the cargo area is ample, with 20.8 cubic feet to be more precise. Fold the rear seats and you will get 55.3 cubic feet of cargo space. The Crosstrek comes with a standard 6.5-inch touchscreen and we are hoping to see a larger 7-inch unit as standard.
Additionally, Subaru offers an EyeSight safety suite that will probably include the latest driver-assistance aids. As for the Crosstrek Sport, this model comes with a higher level of comfort, more high-quality materials, and more high-tech amenities.
